About This Amsterdam Tour
He is the subject of books, films, and songs. He's one of those special people who's recognizable simply by his first name. But to really know Vincent Van Gogh (1853-1890), you have to visit the place dedicated to him.
At the Van Gogh Museum, you can surround yourself in the magic and the genius of his paintings. The vivid colors and striking lines. The depth of emotion behind each brush stroke. And the honesty they convey.
Your guide is an accomplished art historian who knows practically everything that can be known about Vincent Van Gogh. From his middle-class upbringing to his love for Agostina Segatori, who modeled Portrait.
When your tour is done, you'll have a deeper understanding of Vincent Van Gogh. Both the artist and the man. Perhaps, like the song, Vincent says, "this world was never meant for one as beautiful as you."
Please meet your guide in front of the Cobra Cafe, which is located at Hobbemastraat 18 on Museumplein (Museum Square), next to the I-Amsterdam sign. The nearest tram stop is Rijksmuseum.
